Had 2 beta testers play Link-Dead today (11 and 14 yrs old). I must confess I feel better now, the game is worth it just with the climbing. And both agree wow this looks much better than Soldat :p. The controls seem to be easy to learn. I was worried about that (there’s a faster learning curve than Soldat it seems). With no enemies to kill the testing ended with a Soldat LAN deathmatch. I got reminded once again just how much fun Soldat is. An interesing fact is that Soldat was designed by me mainly as a LAN game. I never thought it would become an internet success with clans, leagues and tournaments. This whole internet movement just happened and I really don’t understand it. Sure I promoted it but never got into it. The power of Soldat lies in games played with your friends or siblings. You haven’t tasted Soldat until you’ve played it on LAN, it’s 10x the game. With all that I am now even more convinced that I cannot top Soldat in terms of fun and I can do only something completely different. Design a game to be played mainly over the internet that will be enjoyable on a whole new level.
